Description

For years, Christians have argued, debated, and fought one another while "speaking the truth in love," yet we are no closer to the grace-filled life Jesus modeled. Biblical scholar and popular podcast host of The Bible for Normal People, Jared Byas casts a new vision for the Christian life that's built not on certainty, but on the risk of love.

A biblically-based Christian life is not grounded in having all the answers but in a living relationship. This ultimately shifts our focus from collecting the "right" answers to loving others deeply and authentically. With stories and insights drawn from his years as a pastor, professor, and podcast host, Jared Byas calls us back to the heart of the Bible: that truth is only true when it's lived out in love.

In a refreshing voice that's both witty and profoundly revelatory, Jared unpacks the concept of truth, its meaning, and why we so often fight over it. He makes a compelling case for how what we believe is less important than how we believe it and that, more than anything else, telling the truth in love is about following Jesus.

For anyone who has ever felt forced to choose between truth and love, acceptance and rightness, this book offers a path forward beyond truth wars and legalistic religion to a love that matters more.

Author Bio

Hey. My name is Jared, which you probably already knew to get to this page. I’m a serial question-asker and ideas explorer. My favorite phrases are “Ok. But why?” and “Is there another way?” My mom and teachers loved that about me as a kid. At least that’s what I think it means when people roll their eyes at you.

My passion is to explore new ways of being Christian and help people translate all of life’s big questions into a life full of meaning and connection. I like to take super smart people and ask them, “You’re smart. Great. And how does what you’re saying help us love each other better right here and right now?”

This kind of questioning has led me to some wonderful places where I have been able to meet and work with wonderful people. I have been a pastor, professor, Sunday school teacher, podcast host, author, speaker, and leader of several organizations.
